Nat Clymer

Nat was named the Chapter Director for the New Brunswick, NJ Chapter of Flashes of Hope in July of 2008 at the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital. Nat was excited to start a chapter in the New Jersey area after seeing a friend's photo shoot that was done for the Philadelphia Chapter of Flashes of Hope. Nat had his first start with photography in the US Navy as a Photographer's Mate - and has been an award winning professional photographer for over 30 years. He was a staff photographer for several newspapers in the Central New Jersey area for about 15 years before starting his own commercial photography business 20 years ago. Today, he continues to shoot his very personal, narrative style of photography for his primary clients; including universities, healthcare institutions and Fortune 100 corporations in the Tri-State area.

Hands on head

The children often request to be photographed with special friends – in this case a stuffed bunny. Children are also photographed with parents, siblings, hospital staff and even fellow patients. This sweet image was captured at All Children's Hospital in Tampa, Florida.
